OQmented Introduces New MEMS-Based 3D Depth Camera
ITZEHOE, Germany, January 5, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – OQmented’s ultra-compact 3D depth-sensing camera offers a cost-effective solution to upgrade mobile or stationary cameras with complementary RGB-D technology. Applying a biaxial MEMS laser scanner, it is designed around a patented structured light projector and provides precise high-resolution scans over a wide adjustable field of view. Unlike conventional low resolution infrared dot projectors, OQmented’s LiDAR camera projects dynamically changing infrared patterns by applying patented Lissajous laser scanning technology which is key to frame rates in the kilohertz range. Concentrating all the laser energy of an eye-safe IR laser into a single point that is dynamically scanned by the biaxial MEMS mirror is crucial to overcoming the typical depth range and resolution limitations of standard 3D LiDAR cameras. with fixed IR spotlights.
Unique dynamic infrared pattern projector in OQmented 3D depth camera technology can convert smartphones with ordinary RGB cameras to smartphones with 3D LiDAR cameras. The material reduced to a minimum and the artificial intelligence algorithms for the deep reconstruction allow maximum profitability and compactness of the device. In addition to 3D depth camera applications for smartphones, OQmented LiDAR cameras can be specifically trained and adapted to other use cases, such as gesture recognition, AR / MR / VR context or counting. of people.
The applications of 3D camera technology are manifold, both in the consumer and commercial fields. Global Industry Analysts Predict 3D Camera Market to Reach Global Market Size of $ 13.4 Billion by 20261. OQmented’s technology meets the challenge of achieving high resolution images with only a few components, a small form factor, cost efficiency and very low power consumption.
“Achieving the minimum device size but also the necessary high performance is a challenge for which we have developed a very cost effective solution,” said Ulrich Hofmann, CEO / CTO and co-founder of OQmented. Thomas von Wantoch, CEO / CFO and co-founder of OQmented, adds: “Fast, compact and accurate 3D scanning systems will play an important role for all AR / MR / VR applications, which is why we are delighted to present our solution at CES. 2022. “
OQmented also presents an innovative demonstration of AR smart glasses technology that integrates and applies OQmented’s Bubble MEMS® Technology. Bringing together OQmented’s single-chip MEMS projection solution and the diffractive waveguide display from their partner Dispelix, the smart glasses demo harnesses laser beam scanning technology to enable stylish and lightweight augmented reality glasses. . The demo includes a revised hardware platform, improving the stability of the projection.
OQmented demonstrates at booth 15972, Tech East, Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC), Central Hall.
OQmented is a leading technology company that develops and sells ultra-compact LBS projectors for augmented reality devices and the best 3D sensing solutions for mobile and stationary applications. The unique Lissajous scanning pattern in combination with the patented Bubble MEMS vacuum packaging® proprietary technology and electronics and software are enabling new product categories to be created in consumer sectors and various other industries.
